A quadrilateral with two distinct pairs of equal adjacent sides [1]

As a result of this definition:

  • Diagonals are perpendicular
  • Opposite angles enclosed by two unequal adjacent sides are equal
  • Area = half the product of the diagonals

A Kite in which all four sides are equal is called a rhombus.


Notes

  1. There seems to be some debate about whether or not this is a bona fide sub-classification of quadrilaterals, and if so, how it should be defined. See http://www.mathopenref.com/kite.html
